About Us:
GE’s Industrial Design Organization is a collaboration of industrial and interaction designers, R&D engineers, consumer insights researchers, human factors specialists, and model makers. We have a well equipped shop, a human-factors lab that facilitates in-context studies, and we work very closely with product and marketing managers, and a large contingent of engineers to create the future of GE’s home appliance product lines.

Being named the top US travel destination of 2013 by Lonely Planet, Louisville is home to unique, quirky, one-of-a-kind shops and restaurants run by vibrant individuals you won’t find anywhere else.
